Things to do in Flagstaff

Drive to the dramatic 900-year-old giant cinder cone formed during a volcanic eruption.

Imagine you’re one of the 12th-century Indians who built cave dwellings along these canyon walls.

For some easy rambles through forested hills on the outskirts of town, grab a map of the Flagstaff Urban Trails System (FUTS) from the city visitor center.

Attempt the challenging, nine-mile round-trip Humphreys Peak Trail in Coconino National Forest, which ascends to 12,633 feet from the Arizona Snowbowl winter ski area.

The ski mountain boasts the largest vertical ski drop in Arizona (2,300 feet).

The museum houses a vast collection of artifacts and artworks from native peoples of the Colorado Plateau. Don’t miss the fascinating skeleton of the Dilophosaurus—a carnivorous dinosaur once native to the area.

Catch some live music and people-watching at the divey, always buzzing hotel bar.

Rent a Specialized Rockhopper.

Check out the fascinating pueblo cliff dwellings, where prehistoric Puebloan and Sinagua peoples made their homes.
